The ONE thing Gov. Christie has going for him is that he's a media celebrity right now, and the American voters have made it clear that celebrity overrides any political stance or philosophy. We ARE the American Idol voters now. But Guy, your assertion that his popularity numbers are the highest in Quinnipiac polling history are unpersuasive. George Bush had off-the-charts popularity in 2003 after the decision to send troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, and that vanished to the point that he had to eke out a victory in 2004 against a candidate that was unimaginably weak. No, Christie's popularity is fleeting, and nobody outside New Jersey gives a rip about him.
